Big Picture: The Citizen Soldier
DVD copied by Timothy Vollmer. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). The American soldier, like any other American citizen, wants to know what is going on around him and just how it affects him. Your Army knows also that an educated soldier increases the efficiency of the Army. THE BIG PICTURE shows you how the Army provides the men and women of the Army with information and educational opportunities. Information supplied by newspapers, overseas radio networks, discussions, books, pamphlets, and maps keeps the soldier up-to-date on the local, national and international situation -- wherever he may be located. Education, either on-duty or off-duty is made available to the soldier in subjects ranging from the elementary grades through the college level. THE BIG PICTURE tells the story in film and through interview with Dr. Ralph W. Scott, chief educational advisor of the Department of the Army and Major John D. Danzenbaker, the Army's Troop Information and Education Division and former Third Division Information and Education Officer in Korea. Dr. Scott of Alexandria, Virginia, is formerly of the faculty of Columbia University, University of Wisconsin, Dalhausie University in Canada, and St. Paul's University in Tokyo. Major Danzenbaker is from Ambler, Pennsylvania, and has been awarded the Bronze Star with Cluster, Commendation Ribbon with Cluster and the Purple Heart with Cluster.
